Stars: Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Stellan Skarsgard, Minnie Driver, Cole Hauser, Casey Affleck

Give us credit here: We’re openly admitting to getting all teary-eyed from a Ben Affleck movie. No, not Daredevil, though with that garbage we flirted with crying in the name of Marvel Comics fandom. Go ahead, diss away. But do us a favor and admit that the first time you saw Good Will Hunting, the climactic exchange between Robin Williams and Matt Damon achieved maximum impact.

It’s at that point when Damon’s character, genius everyman Will Hunting, finally lets his guard down and reveals the abuse he experienced as a child, which Williams’ psychiatrist, Sean Maguire, relates to, being a former abuse victim himself. Sean repeats, “It’s not your fault. It’s not your fault.” Will, unable to keep up his tough guy façade, eventually starts weeping; thanks to Damon’s stellar performance, the tears are justified.
